of the americans killed in the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya on tuesday. back to the funds, cumberland, kentucky, our line for democrats. caller: first of all, i appreciate the servicemen we lost and god bless them and their families. in the bush years, it was nothing but terror. that is all you saw on the news. it seems to me that obama is just trying a different way. like egypt, it is a new government and he is trying to give them a chance. i would like to know what you think about that. is it right to give him a chance? host: what do you think? what kind of a chance you give them and how long? caller: i would not really know that. the republican party is ready to yank everything out. it takes time to get a new government going. host: the lead editorial in this morning's "washington post" -- back to the phones, atlanta, georgia, our line for independences. caller: thank you. as far as the two candidates go, from everything i have seen so far, i am not impressed with either one of them. neither of them really inspire confidence with me. that they can handle what is going o

. our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hours before in cairo. almost a copycat of the demonstrations against our facility in cairo, which were prompted by the video. >> these territotraitors, the wy they acted, them choosing specific dates for this so- called demonstration, i think this leaves us with no doubt that this was preplanned, predetermined. host: here's the headline in the washington times -- on facebook, getting some of your comments on our questions on should the u.s. government control web content? an independent in pennsylvania, walid. caller: how are you? i think they should pull the video. host: why? caller: it's not about freedom of speech. we are supposed to have all these type of freedoms. by the same token, what are you seeing as far as cameras on everything? it's just free any more. it's ok to intrude with the patriot act in our phone calls and things of that nature. i don't have a problem with -- they don't have a problem with that. but people have a problem with not pulling inflam

the hunt is on for those responsible for deadly attack at a u.s. consulate there. eamonn is in benghazi, what can you tell us? >> reporter: good morning, kate. we understand that an fbi team of special agents has arrived here in benghazi. they're keeping a low profile for security reasons and are expected to at some point begin investigating what exactly happened at that consulate. they're going to sift through the ashes and look for any clues that can identify any individuals involved in that attack. we know that the u.s. military has deployed its resources, including drones and other intelligence gathering mechanisms to try to keep an eye and ear out for any of these people involved. they're getting a lot of cooperation from the libyan government. the libyan government says that they believe this was a pre-planned attack, not an outburst of spontaneous violence. and they're also saying that they have four individuals in custody that they are questioning who may have possibly important information that could benefit the americans. they also have several other individuals under surveill
